Purple Bumblebee is a handsome cherry tomato up to one inch in diameter and deep red with dark green stripes. It can develop a very sweet flavor, particularly if grown in a container or greenhouse where soil moisture can be monitored. This is one the chefs in Santa Fe like because not only is it beautiful in a salad, but it also holds very well. The thicker skin of the tomato means the texture is crunchier than most cherry tomatoes.

Variety from the USA, bred by Fred Hempel. Purple version of the Bumblebee family Fruit of 20 to 40 grams of plum type, round with a tendency to slightly oval.
